*(Apologies for cross-posting)

*Synesthesia Recordings is pleased to announce a '*Call for electroacoustic
works - 2009*'.

All presented music works should fit one of the following categories:

   1. *Works for recorded media alone *
   2. * Works for recorded media and instrumental solo *

Works should be produced using any conceivable analog device processing
tools (pedals, no input mixers, analog synthesizers, custom built devices).
The use of computer or any digital device (except a DAW for the
tracking/mixing) is *not allowed*.
The use of working techniques and hardware should be documented with a
detailed document in *PDF* format to be included within the work submission.
A description of the composition poetics and aesthetic goals should be
included for release purposes as well.
The produced work should be rendered as a stereo *44.1 kHz*, *24 bit*, *WAV
(or any Quicktime-compatible)* sound file.

The use of instrumental soloist is limited to one of the following

*Violin*, *Violoncello*, *Double bass*, *Flute*, *Clarinet in B*, *Bass
Clarinet*, *Soprano* and *Alto Saxophone*.

The score should be submitted together with the recording in one of the
following formats: *.sib* or *PDF*.
If the soloist is not available at the moment of the recording session, a
quick render via a virtual instrument is allowed and welcome.
In this case, please send us two different sound files, one including the
simulated solo performance and a “clean” copy of the electroacoustic work.
Synesthesia Recordings will provide the required soloist for the final
Recording, Mix, and Mastering sessions.
The production will take place at *Millenium Audio Recording Studios* in
Rome, Italy.
Compositions should last around 15-20 minutes ca.
A personal *BIO* of around 100 words is requested as well.
The deadline for submissions is the *31st October 2009*.

The *reading panel* will be announced during the second half of May 2009.
Winners will be announced in December 2009. The selected works will be
published by Synesthesia Recordings during the first quarter of 2010.

*“Synesthesia is a crossing of the senses.”
**This label is to be intended as a repository of live improvised
electroacoustic works.* The main goal is to retrieve the late Renaissance
praxis of *“Ricercare”* intended as exploration of a technical device
playing it, subverting it in different ways. So this kind of *“Musica
Ricercata”* should be affected by individual approaches to improvisation
with sound materials of any kind, samples, electronic devices, pure sine
generators, transducers. The local and momentary gesture generates a
relational sequenced processes that defines the sonic path from start to the
end. This recordings have to be intended as a “document” or *Simulacra* of a
solo or collective performance but not as the performance itself (which is
affected by causality relationships and other environmental and statistical
phenomena). The Project is maintained, supervised by *U.S.O Project* in
collaboration with many other audio-visual artists.
